Independence sets ADHESIVE
SERVICES COMPANY apart from other companies and has allowed us
to establish an unparalleled record of successful projects while
attracting–and keeping–a team of specialists that brings unmatched
experience to your job site, whether it's a refinery in the Middle
East, a pulp plant in Canada or a nuclear power plant in New York.
Being independent has also helped ASC build a track record of
experience that includes a 99 percent success rate.
